Purpose: Assess family functioning

Age: 10 and older

Time: FAM-III - 20 minutes for each form; Brief FAM – 5-10 minutes

The Family Assessment Measure –III (FAM-III) is an assessment of family functioning consisting of three forms:

  1. General Scale: Examines overall family health
  2. Dyadic Relationship Scale: Examines how a family member views his or her relationship with another family member
  3. Self-Rating Scale: Allows each person to rate his or her own functioning within the family

It is unique in its ability to provide a multi-rater and multigenerational (within the family) assessment of functioning across six universal clinical parameters and two validity scales. By comparing the three scales to each other, you obtain a rich picture of how family members view levels of family interaction.

Also available is the Brief FAM, which consists of shorter versions of the three scales. It provides an overview of family functioning, making it ideal for screening or for preliminary evaluations. It is also useful for monitoring family functioning during the course of treatment.

Assessors using online scoring also have the option of printing E-Paper forms that can be scored online by entering the responses.
